(back) Subject: RE: recital advice From: "Randy Terry" <randyterry@laumc.org> Date: Sun, 31 Dec 2000 08:26:23 -0800   I would pick numerous shorter pieces that could use the individual stops. Solo on the Diapason, a piece the shows off the flutes, strings, reed, = etc. Some of the Bach or Buxtehude choral preludes could be registered to suit this style instrument and be quite effective.   As far as louder pieces go, I would try to get something kind of lean (if they add the 4' Octave you could get an 8-4-2 chorus with the super coupler.) Maybe one of the Baroque English voluntaries??   Then you need something big and massive - I would pick something with more "vertical" harmony, rather than lots of passage work which might not sound great with this instrument. Do you know the John Cook "Fanfare?" Or the Wm. Mathias "Processional?" I just did an Eric Timan voluntary on "Adeste Fideles" which was almost completely chordal except for some pedal passage work near the end. It reminded me of Ives "Variations on America." I = used it at Lessons and Carols because it struck me as a bit severe for = Christmas Eve, but it would be a good recital piece - especially with an organ like this. I did try it in a dead space (my church has glorious acoustics) and it didn't work to me there, but that may be because I wasn't used to = playing it in a dead room!   Vaughan Williams' "Rhosymedre" would work well here! Vierne's "Berceuse" from 24 PIECES. I'd better shut up and get back to work or there will be music at Service this morning!   Randy Terry   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of Gary Black Sent: Saturday, December 30, 2000 2:43 PM To: PipeChat Subject: recital advice     Dear List: I would like some opinions on recital music of moderate difficulty to be played on the following size organ.

As I choose neither the anthems nor the hymns (nor direct the choir, obviously), I'll just list the organ stuff. Immanuel Presbyterian Church (in Clifton, a nifty neighborhood near the University of Cincinnati) is a dwindling congregation of some 100 souls, of whom 80 will show up on a good day. The organ is a 1968 smallish three-manual Schantz, due to receive three new ranks come August.   Dec. 24 (morning) Prelude: Adeste Fideles & Resonet in laudibus (from "Cathedral Windows") S.

(back) Subject: Easter NOW??!! (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Sun, 31 Dec 2000 17:23:00 -0800   You betcha!   On Wednesday night we will run through the propers for Epiphany (transferred to next Sunday), the anthem ("Awakening Chorus", a repeat from Christmas), the Candlemas liturgy, and then the second hour will be spent on ... EASTER!   Before Mass - Christ Our Passover - this was the one I'd been trying to find for two years that showed up in a stack of old choir music over the summer ... Victorian potboiler, but my 75-year-old mezzo wanted to sing it "one more time before I die", and I'm happy to accommodate her (the singing, not the dying) (grin). Don't remember the composer ... it's not the MacFarlane.   Offertory - O Death, Where Is Thy Sting? and But Thanks Be To God - Handel   Communion - haven't a clew, but will by Wednesday night (grin) ... maybe Since By Man Came Death, since I'm in a Handel mood   After Mass - Hallelujah! - Handel (natch)   After three years, they've got Holy Week DOWN, so we just have to run through each liturgy once or twice.   They seem to like the choir singing anthems before and after Mass, rather than listening to Le Grand Hammond ... fine with me!   Cheers,   Bud        
(back) Subject: Happy New Year From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <organist@total.net> Date: Sun, 31 Dec 2000 20:31:05 -0500   I'd like to wish everyone a very happy new year, and all the best in 2001. My postlude this evening was a toccata on "Auld Lang Syne", played in the french romantic style, with the melody in the pedals. I made it up as I went, and everyone thought it was great. Two people came up and asked the name of the composer. When I said I made it up on the spur of the moment, they said it's high time I start composing. I've done this sort of thing thousands of times, and I think I will start writing my notes down. Who knows what will come of this............   Carlo    
(back) Subject: improvising for the computer From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Sun, 31 Dec 2000 17:45:09 -0800   Carlo - you really should hook a computer up to the Rodgers and get Finale = or Sibelius ... I haven't tried it yet, but supposedly it can save your improvisations and spit them out on a printer. You have to keep a steady rhythm and set the program not to divide the beat beyond the smallest note-value you actually play, so it doesn't notate 128th note rests, etc., = but I'm told it can be done. I have a "spare" computer at the church, and I'm going to try it ... supposedly I can also expand the Hammond combination action memory and play-back capacity that way.   Cheers,   Bud   Carlo Pietroniro wrote:   > I'd like to wish everyone a very happy new year, and all the best in = 2001. > My postlude this evening was a toccata on "Auld Lang Syne", played in = the > french romantic style, with the melody in the pedals.
